- Bothy hunt..or similar
used to stay here http://www.badrallach.com/stay/bothy.html
a bit sanitised I know, but it has to do for a range of people, however having been there 4 yrs on the trot we are looking for somewhere similar. NW of Scotland or Islands prefered but within reach of Central Scotland.
Cheap – dont need/want TV, dishwasher, spa bath etc
Mountains for walking
Water – loch or sea bit of fishin
Trails for riding
Isolated enough that 8-10 pissed 40 somethings on weekend passes won’t upset people by shouting **** at each other at 1 am!
Maybe a pub in walking distance…
Moon on stick would help too 🙂Posted 4 years agodebaserSubscriber
The NTS have some decent options that fit your requirements, the Torridon one in particular is close to a good pub and some amazing riding/walking.
However, the wise monk’s suggestion looks pretty hard to beat.Posted 4 years ago13thfloormonkMember
Oooo… Knoydart vs Torridon eh? Difficult decision.
Mountains for walking – Ladhar-Bheinne versus Liathach?
Water – Loch Torridon vs. Lochan Dubh Lochain?
Trails for riding – Think Torridon wins that one hands down although Knoydart has Scotland’s tiniest trail centre! 😀
Isolated enough that 8-10 pissed 40 somethings on weekend passes won’t upset people by shouting **** at each other at 1 am! – Bothy in Knoydart is about as isolated as it gets in Scotland I think
Maybe a pub in walking distance… – The Auld Forge in Inverie, 3 mile walk in the dark on an estate track, pack hip flasks and headtorches!
I reckon for access Knoydart is a winner, take the train from Glasgow to Mallaig, Ferry to Inverie, 1hr walk to Bothy. Leave the cars at home!Posted 4 years agotheblackmountMember
Great wee place. Fill your boots:

Indeed. A winner if you have two 2 days to get there and back 😉Posted 4 years ago
